An overview on Test Automation Test Automation
Basically Software Testing is 2 types 1) Manual Testing 2) Test Automation Manual Testing: Testing software manually is called Manual Testing. we can test all accepts of software manually. Below Testing Types can be tested manually Test Types: a) Functional Testing b) Regression Testing c) GUI Testing d) Usability Testing e) Security Testing f) Compatibility Testing g) Recovery Testing h) Reliability testing Etc… Drawbacks of Manual Testing (i)Time consuming. (ii) More resources required. (iii)Human Errors (iv)Repetition of the Task is not much (v)Tiredness (vi)Simultaneous auctions are not possible (Parallel) Test Automation: Testing Software using any Automation tools is called Test Automation Advantages of Test Automation:

3)Lack of expertisation.a) Fast: Tools are faster in execution than human users b) Reliable: Tools are reliable in complex calculations and tasks c) Reusable: we can reuse Automated Tests at any number of times d) Repeatable: we can repeat same operations for required number of times e) Programmable:we can use flow control statements for appalying logic f) Comprehensive: we can execute test batches without human interaction also Test Automation can be used in below areas of Testing: a) Functional & Regression Testing b) Load/Stress/Performance Testing c) Security Testing d) Unit Testing Drawbacks of Automation Testing 1)It is expensive 2)We cannot automate all areas. 4)It has some limitations (It cannot test every thing) Which Software Testing should be automated? Tests that need to be execute of every build of the application (Sanity Testing) Tests that use multiple data values (Retesting / Data Drives Testing) Tests that required data from application intimates (G. Attributes) Load and Stress Testing Which Software Testing should not be automated? Usability Testing One time testing .U.I.

Tools support for QTP: -----------------------------• VB Script for Scripting (for implementing programming logic) • VB Script engine integrated in QTP. Chinese.A. QTP Follows Test Object Model for Performing Testing operations. (Object based means. (Keyword Driven Approach means.) • It has adapted Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting edition for programming and Excel like spread sheet for Data driven testing. statements etc. etc languages with respect to license. functions. (It supports English. Excel. in 2007. Korean.Quick look Tests or A.. we can automate test operations) (LoadRunner is a Protocol based Test Tool) • QTP is for Functional and Regression Testing. Adodb etc. Object models from QTP. QTP Basic Features • • QTP Launched in 2002 (Nov). . Based on either Test Objects or Automation Objects or Utility Objects only. Later taken over by HP. methods. so apart from scripting features we can use File system. Japanese.S. where as LoadRunner depends on server side Operations. • It has multilingual support. example: Commands. QTP is an Object Based Testing Tool. so HP developed LoadRunner for Windows as well as UNIX versions) • It supports GUI based (Graphical user interface) and Web based Applications Automation. Keywords. word. By Mercury Interactive.P (As soon as possible) Testing Ad-hoc testing / Random Testing Customers requirement are frequently changing. (Basically QTP is a Functional and Regression Test tool but we can use it for little bit Compatibility Testing and Performance Testing) • It follows Keyword Driven Approach. are used for creating Test scripts) • It supports Windows Operating Environment only. does not support CUI (Command user interface) Applications. (QTP basically depends on User Interface to automate test operations and it is not depends on server side interactions.

• It supports IE (Internet Explorer) only for recording tests. • QTP has UNI code support. • • Seat or Node locked License.2007 Mercury Interactive . for execution it supports other browsers like Mozilla and AOL.0.2.9. If we want multiple concurrent licenses we can purchase. QTP developed in . Concurrent or float license. opera Etc apart from IE.0 Quick Test Professional • 5.3 –2005 • 9.2. 8. Environment variables and for exporting object repositories. QTP has two types of License.5 – 2003 • 8.0 to 5. Version History of QuickTest Professional • Astra QuickTest (Mother tool of QTP) 1. • QTP can be used for user interface (UI) test case automation and some limited (Non UI) Test case automation like File system operations and Data base operations. • QTP uses XML format for Test results. we can use for any system but one user at any time.0 – 2004 • 8.NET Technology.• SQL (Structured query language) engine integrated in QTP. • Seat license for one system and Concurrent License. so we can use SQL Statements in QTP to perform Database Operations • • Excel like spread sheet integrated in QTP for performing Data driven Testing We can install MS Script Debugger with QTP for Debugging Test scripts. • It was derived from Astra QuickTest (mother tool of QTP).6 – Nov 2002 • 6.1-2006 • 9. ------------------------------------------------------• QTP can be integrated with other Tools like WinRunner and Quality Center. • • QTP is a Desktop Application (I-Tier/Stand alone).

it is possible to begin preparing our . focusing on the operations to test using both QuickTest built-in keywords and your own user-defined keywords. because it is possible to add objects to the object repository before they exist in an application.• User may not have command on the Recorded script. e) Advantages of Recording/ Where Applicable • It is used for Analyzing the AUT in the initial stage to find out weather the QTP tool is Recognizing all of our Application Objects or not • It is easy to create Tests / Test Scripts •It is used for frequently changing UI (User Interface) • It takes less time to create Tests Keyword Driven Methodology Keyword-Driven Methodology By creating our tests with a keyword-driven methodology in mind. our tests become more modular. they may corrupt. Additionally. So locating errors is difficult • Recorded scripts are QTP internal files.

We instruct QuickTest to learn the objects in our application according to filters that we define. We need to specify configuration settings that affect how we create and run tests in general—these settings are not test-specific. Add (learn) objects from our application. This helps make both test creation and maintenance easier over time. Ensure that objects in the object repository have names that are easy for application testers to recognize and that follow any established object naming guidelines. In general. we build one or more object repositories and ensure that all objects have clear names that follow any predetermined naming conventions defined by our organization. By creating and populating shared object repositories that can be associated with multiple actions. Building our Tests We can create tests that are as simple or complex as needed. Setting up Object Repositories In this step. Configuring QuickTest According to our Testing Needs After we set up the test automation infrastructure. we need to configure QuickTest to use this infrastructure: Define your global testing preferences. We can create object repositories using QuickTest functionality to recognize and learn the objects in your application.automated keyword-driven tests even before a software build containing the new objects is available. or we can manually define objects. We may perform the following tasks when creating tests and test steps: . it is best to create tests and actions that check just one or a few simple functions or complete a transaction rather than creating long tests and actions that perform several complex tasks or that perform many tasks. we can use the same object repository in multiple tests.

To do so. if needed. and a set of relevant operations that QuickTest can perform on the object. a sub-set of these properties that can uniquely identify objects of that class. This enables us to use our special keywords in any of the associated tests Test Object Model Test Object Model The test object model is a large set of object types or classes that QuickTest uses to represent the objects in your application. . Associate our object repositories with the relevant actions This enables us to insert steps that perform operations on those objects. Create the required actions. select File > New > Test.Create new tests. Associate our function libraries with the relevant tests. Each test object class has a list of identification properties that QuickTest can learn about the object.

or use SetTOProperty statements during a run session. Understanding and Using Regular Expressions. When QuickTest learns an object in our application. the product developer for ActiveX objects. see Specifying or Modifying Property Values. generally using the value of one of its prominent properties. QuickTest records the relevant operation as it is performed on an object. QuickTest: • Identifies the QuickTest test object class that represents the learned object and creates the appropriate test object. Netscape for Netscape Browser objects. we can add test objects to an object repository in several ways. or you can parameterize property values with Data Table parameters so that a different value is used during each iteration of the test. The native property set for each run-time object is created and maintained by the object creator (for example. We can view the current identification property values of any object on your desktop using the Properties tab of the Object Spy. During a run session. the Click method is applicable to a WebButton test object. For more information. You can view or modify the identification property values that are stored with your test in the Object Properties or Object Repository dialog box. When you add an object to an object repository. you specify which operation to perform on each test object. Microsoft for Microsoft Internet Explorer objects. You can also use regular expressions to identify property values based on conditions or patterns you define. which is a storehouse for objects. . Property values of objects in your application may change dynamically each time your application opens. Similarly. or based on certain conditions. You can modify identification properties manually while designing your test. Test Object and Native Properties and Operations The identification property set for each test object is created and maintained by QuickTest.A test object is an object that QuickTest creates in the test to represent the actual object in your application. For example. If you record steps. QuickTest performs the specified test object operation on the run-time object. see Viewing Object Properties and Operations Using the Object Spy. For more information. it adds the corresponding test object to an object repository. and so on). You may need to modify the identification property values to match the native property values. a test object operation is a method or property that QuickTest recognizes as applicable to a particular test object class. see Managing Test Objects in Object Repositories. As you add steps to your test. QuickTest stores information on the object that will help it identify and check the object during the run session. A run-time object is the actual object in your application on which methods are performed during the run session. For more information on modifying object properties. • Reads the current value of the object's properties in your application and stores the list of identification properties and values with the test object. Native operations are the methods of the object in your application as defined by the object creator. • Chooses a unique name for the test object.

choosing. For more information. it is probably most efficient to save objects in a shared object repository. If you modify an object in the local object repository. see Associating Object Repositories with Actions. you enable multiple actions to use the objects. Understanding Object Repository Types Objects can be stored in two types of object repositories—a shared object repository and a local object repository. When you plan and create tests. For information. or you can store the objects in your tests in one or more shared object repositories. you may want to use local object repositories. or modifying shared object repositories because all objects are automatically saved in a local object repository that can be accessed by its corresponding action. see Retrieving and Setting Identification Property Values. see Deciding Whether to Use Local or Shared Object Repositories. the object definition is used from the first occurrence of the object. if required. A shared object repository stores objects in a file that can be accessed by multiple tests (in read-only mode). You can store the objects for each action in its corresponding local object repository. see Viewing Object Properties and Operations Using the Object Spy. you can record and run tests without creating. We can retrieve property values from the run-time object during the run session by adding GetROProperty statements. For more information. For more information. see Accessing Native Properties and Operations. For more information on associating shared object repositories. you can use the same shared object repository for multiple actions—if the actions include the same objects. you can use a combination of objects from your local and shared object repositories. according to the order in which the shared object repositories are associated with the action. When the objects in your application change. A local object repository stores objects in a file that is associated with one specific action. If you are new to using QuickTest. shared location instead of multiple locations. your changes do not have any effect on any other action or any other test (except tests that call the action. so that only that action can access the stored objects. If an object with the same name is located in both the local object repository and in a shared object repository associated with the same action. Object information that applies to many actions is kept in one central location. We can retrieve or modify property values of the test object during the run session by adding GetTOProperty and SetTOProperty statements in the Keyword View or Expert View. according to your needs. . you can update them in one location for all the actions that use this shared object repository. you must consider how you want to store the objects in your tests. In this way. By storing objects in shared object repositories and associating these repositories with your actions. In this way. If you are familiar with testing. For each action. You can also transfer local objects to a shared object repository.We can view the syntax of the test object operations as well as the native operations of any object on your desktop using the Operations tab of the Object Spy. If an object with the same name is located in more than one shared object repository associated with the same action. as described in Inserting Calls to Existing Actions). the action uses the local object definition. You can also use the attribute object property to identify Web objects in your application according to user-defined properties. you can access the internal operations and properties of the run-time object using the Object property. If the available test object operations and identification properties for a test object do not provide the functionality you need. This reduces maintenance and enhances the reusability of your tests because it enables you to maintain the objects in a single.

Object: Object is something. Shared object repositories are read-only when accessed from tests. you edit them using the Object Repository Manager. it always uses the object repositories that are specified in the Associated Repositories tab of the Action Properties dialog box or in the Associate Repositories dialog box. You can also use multiple object repositories for each action. When using a shared object repository. which has structure and properties. Object Repository Object Repository: It is a storage place of QTP where objects information can be stored and it also acts as interface between the Test script and the AUT in order to identify the objects during execution. you can use the same object repository for multiple actions.Local objects are saved locally with the action. and can be accessed only from that action. Software objects: . When you open and work with an existing test.

Ex: Creating objects in filesystemobject class. Run time objects: The objects present in the AUT. Web Pages. Ex: Buttons. WinButton.connection class. Excel. 2. Types of Object in QTP: There are four types of object available in QTP. Utility objects They are QTP reserved objects used for Testing and Result reporting. Services for inserting transaction points 4. etc… Test Objects: References of Run time objects. 2. Ex: 1. Check boxes etc. As it is QTP internal file user no need to save modifications. Reporter for defining results. adodb. dictionary object class.TSR extension) Local Repository: QTP creates a Local Repository for every Action automatically during Recording. Run time objects Test objects Utility objects Automation objects/User defined objects. as software objects. Shared repository(. That cannot be shared among tests. delete operations on local repository. . Ex: WinEdit. Local repository (. 3.MTR extension) 2. WebButton. Link.We call Windows. Edit boxes. Environment for using environment variables Automation objects/User defined objects User can create objects. 1. 1.. 4. Application class etc. There are two types of repository available in QTP. those can be used for performing specific operations. Links. SystemUtil for launching/closing the application. 3. Buttons. etc… Note: Test objects names vary from one environment to another. User can add some more objects to Local repository User can perform rename.

At the end of assistive properties list also if it feels not satisfied and it finally goes to Ordinal Identifier. like this qtp learns one by one.Generally for every object 20-25 properties information available. if we feel normal identification is not sufficient for any object. Qtp has default object identification configuration for every environment. if we feel that config is not sufficient for recognizing objects in our application. After normal identification if qtp feels not satisfied then it goes to smart . QTP learns information in the following in case of Smart Identification: Smart identification is an optional feature. we can configure some more Object Identification Types a) 1) 2) b) 1) 2) c) 1) 2) 3) Normal identification Mandatory properties Assistive properties Smart identification base filter properties optional filter properties Ordinal identifier location index creation time(only for web) QTP learns information in the following in case of normal identification: First of all the qtp learns all the mandatory properties at a time and thinks whether these properties sufficient to identify the object uniquely. It learns first assistive property and once again stops and thinks. qtp recognizes object using 2 0r 3 important properties. if it feels sufficient then it stops learning otherwise. in order to avoid Ordinal Identifier. and then we configure Smart Identification for that object.

Still it feels not satisfied finally it goes to Ordinal Identifier. Tool Settings Globalization: As QTP is a I-tier(Stand-alone) application. qtp generates 0. Ordinal identifiers: There are 3 types of ordinal identifiers available 1) Location: is based on object location in the AUT . NOTE: After executing these scripts all team members can get same settings. .location starts from zero. then it stops learning otherwise it goes Optional Filter Properties and learns one by one. STEPS: 1) Settings available in 3 areas.making Tool settings globally is not possible. in smart identification 2 types of properties available. For making tool settings global. QTP is providing a special feature called "Generate Script". 2) index: it is based on sequence of the programs. index starts from zero 3) Creation time: it is based on loading time of the web objects. a) File->Settings b) Tools->Options c) Tools->Object Identification 2) Perform required settings and generate Scripts 3) Share Script files to team members and ask them to execute those scripts. If it feels sufficient.1.identification.2 like numbers. first qtp learns all base filter properties at a time and thinks whether these properties are sufficient for identifying the object uniquely.

we must preface each comment with a comment delimiter. This can be a problem if we use an automated procedure to extract comments from a script. . the single quotation mark is a valid VBScript character that has uses beyond delimiting comments. both of the following lines of code are valid comments: ' This is a comment using a single quote delimiter. For example. Second. Because we are less likely to use '* anywhere else in our script. To ensure that the script host does not attempt to interpret a comment as a command. VBScript allows two delimiters: the single quotation mark (') and the REM statement. First. REM This is a comment using the REM statement as a delimiter. Although most script writers use the single quotation mark. you might consider following the single quotation mark with an asterisk when commenting your code: '* This is another comment. it makes a good delimiter.Adding Comments Adding Comments to Scripts Comments are statements that are ignored by the script host when the script runs. it makes the comment stand out from the rest of the text. a single quotation mark by itself can be difficult to see at times. This approach has two advantages over the single quotation mark alone. such a procedure might also retrieve items that are not comments.

Err. the comments are placed on separate lines. Comments included on the same line as a VBScript statement (end-of-the-line comments) are valid but can be difficult to read. Most people find it easier to quickly identify the comments used in the second half of the script. "\\RemoteServer\Public" '* Map drive Z.Clear Wscript.Clear Wscript. For example. "\\RemoteServer\Public" '* Check to make sure the operation succeeded. in the first half of the script. comments are placed on the same line as a VBScript statement.Echo "The drive could not be mapped.MapNetworkDrive "Z:".Number <> 0 Then Err.MapNetworkDrive "Z:"." End If '* Map drive Z. while in the second half of the script. If Err. compare the two commenting styles in the following script snippet. ----------------------------------------------On Error Resume Next Set WshNetwork = WScript.Echo "The drive could not be mapped.Always include comments on separate lines except for comments that accompany the declaration of a variable."

This description should not describe the implementation details (how it does it) because these often change over time. Return values for functions and variables that are changed by a procedure. algorithms. should also be described at the beginning of each procedure. you should include an overview that describes the script. . Variables. resulting in unnecessary comment maintenance work. and other system dependencies. Arguments passed to a procedure should be described when their purpose is not obvious and when the procedure expects the arguments to be in a specific range. Section Heading: Comment Contents: Purpose: Assumptions: Remember the following points: Every important variable declaration should include an inline comment describing the use of the variable being declared. enumerating objects. and procedures should be named clearly to ensure that inline comments are only needed for complex implementation details. erroneous comments. Procedure header comments should include the following section headings. At the beginning of your script. especially through reference arguments.

After analyzing results. QTP provides result in Result window and also provides a facility to define our own Results. QTP Provides. then after analyzing results. We can create and execute tests using QTP. if we find any mismatches sending defects through the Bug tracking tool (Every Bug Tracking tool has its own defect report template) If we are using Quality center for Test management. Result Exporting facility also available in QTP Result window. If we are using Bugzilla or Zera or PR-Tracker like Bug Tracking tool. Any how Analyzing Results is the Responsibility of Test Engineer after running tests. . After Running Tests. If we are using QTP for Functional Test Automation and Defect management manual.

Create required actions(ex login. .Actions Action: Set of Statements for perfoming a Task(s) We divide our test into actions to streamline the process of testing. Splitting an action: Navigation: Place cursor in desired location>Edit menu>action>split action>Enter Action 1 name & action 2 name.delte) 2. insert. Purpose of Actions: For understandability For reusing components Types of Actions: 1) Non Re usable actions 2) Re usable actions 3) External actions Operations on Actions: • Creating Actions • Splitting Actions • Renaming Actions • Deleting Actions • Calling an Action • Copying an Action • Making an Action Reusable/Non Reusable Creating an Action: Insert>call to new action>enter name of the action>click ok Steps: 1. Prepare Scripts for those actions.

Calling an action: Insert>call to existing action>browse path of the test>select desired action>click ok. Note: At a time we can split one actions into 2 actions. Making an action reusable: Select Non Reusable action >edit >action>action properties>check reusable action check box >click ok. Generate total test in the default action 2. Note: we can edit this action. Deleting Actions: Select desired action in action drop down box>edit menu>action>delete action>confirm deletion. Renaming actions: Select desired action in action drop down box> edit menu>action>rename action>modify the name>click ok. Split into meaningful actions. .Steps: 1.

We can define a regular expression in standard checkpoint to verify the property values of an object. an Environment parameter value. Where we use: o Defining the property values of an object in Descriptive programming for handling dynamic objects o For parameterizing a step o creating checkpoints with varying values Using Regular Expressions in QTP: We can define a regular expression for a constant value. or a property value in Descriptive programming. searching or replacing algorithms. a Data Table parameter value. when creating a text checkpoint to check that a varying text string is displayed on our application. Regular Expressions in QTP: Regular expressions can be used in QTP for identifying objects and text strings with varying values. we can set the expected value of an object's property as a regular expression so that an object with a varying value can be verified. For XML checkpoints we can set attribute or element values as regular expressions. Ways of Regular Expressions: . They are often used within matching. We can define the text string as a regular expression.Regular Expressions Regular Expressions in QTP What is Regular Expression? It is a way of representing data using symbols.

t. caaaaaar. enter: 186[789] d) Matching Any Single Character Not in a List: When a caret (^) is the first character inside square brackets. Ex: To search for the date 1867.) instructs QTP to search for any single character (except for \n). and cr g) Matching One or More Specific Characters: . it instructs QTP to match any character in the list except for the ones specified in the string. Matches welcomes. such as the letters n. c) Matching Any Single Character in a List: Square brackets instruct QTP to search for any single character within a list of characters.a) Backslash Character: A backslash (\) can serve two purposes. For example: ca*r Matches car. welcomed. enter: 201[0-9] f) Matching Zero or More Specific Characters: An asterisk (*) instructs QTP to match zero or more occurrences of the preceding character. or welcome followed by a space or any other single character. Ex: welcome. or d. b) Matching Any Single Character: A period (. w. e) Matching Any Single Character within a Range: To match a single character within a range. Example: For matching any year in the 2010s. or 1869. Alternatively. 1868. Example: [^ab] Matches any character except a or b. the combination indicates a special character. if the backslash (\) is used in conjunction with some characters that would otherwise be treated as literal characters. we can use square brackets ([ ]) with the hyphen (-) character. It can be used in conjunction with a special character to indicate that the next character be treated as a literal character.

Using groups is especially useful for delimiting the argument(s) to an alternation operator ( | ) or a repetition operator ( * . h) Matching Zero or One Specific Character: A question mark (?) instructs QTP to match zero or one occurrences of the preceding character. { } ). i) Grouping Regular Expressions: Parentheses (()) instruct QTP to treat the contained sequence as a unit. a-z. but nothing else. or after a newline character. n) Matching Any Non-AlphaNumeric Character: \W instructs QTP to match any character other than alphanumeric characters and underscores. . we can use a combination of brackets and an asterisk to limit the search to a combination of non-numeric characters. For example. start. _). For example: ca+r Matches car and caaaaaar.A plus sign (+) instructs QTP to match one or more occurrences of the preceding character. j) Matching One of Several Regular Expressions: A vertical line (|) instructs QTP to match one of a choice of expressions. k) Matching the Beginning of a Line: A caret (^) instructs QTP to match the expression only at the start of a line. starting. but not cr. started. m) Matching Any AlphaNumeric Character Including the Underscore: \w instructs QTP to match any alphanumeric character and the underscore (A-Z. o) Combining Regular Expression Operators: We can combine regular expression operators in a single expression to achieve the exact search criteria we need. and so forth. l) Matching the End of a Line: A dollar sign ($) instructs QTP to match the expression only at the end of a line. + . or before a newline character. 0-9. just as in mathematics and programming languages.* Matches start. For example: ca?r Matches car and cr. starter. ? .
